comment Best way to go about changing a root password on 3000+ Solaris, AIX, and Linux servers?
I don't know what to say but this sounds like a security nightmare. can you ldap? You really need to rethink the entire current approach. How much time and resources do you have and can you get a project approved to re-do the whole thing?

comment Secure file transfer in linux without SSH?
VPN seems like the only sane option here based on what I'm reading but my question is why are you opposed to ssh? It's pretty solid and secure when set up correctly. You can use denyhosts, lock it down a million ways, change default port etc.
